Description: A lot of organisms have found wonderful solutions to adhere to all kinds of surfaces in nature, whether it is to accommodate, to move or to protect themselves. Others, on the contrary, succeeded to create the most slippery surfacing on which no dirt, no germ or anything else can hang.
What if these adhesion and slip superpowers created by the living world could enable us to innovate? Materials that “bind” or “repel” are essential and have always been a part of our fundamental needs. More and more scientists, designers and entrepreneurs draw inspiration from fauna and flora to create cheaper, more efficient and more sustainable sticky or slippery materials and surfacing than the ones currently used.
In this episode, Kalina Raskin will meet researchers, all experts in the Super Glue or the Hyper Slip of the future.
Bio inspiration: gecko, ivy, white lotus, shark, cicada
Description: How could we put an end to the excessive cost in energy and raw materials, to the waste and pollution generated by our constructions?
How could we « grow », no matter the scale, virtuous, sustainable and universal materials which will constitute tomorrow's building facades?
All designers and architects we meet are fascinated: the living organisms they observe have already answered these questions. For millions of years, animals, plants and germs have developed the most varied and effective solutions to build the most beautiful structures, membranes or covers, the most protective housing adapted to their environment by simply using the ingredients and energy at their disposal.
What if we copied nature and built all our constructions with sustainable, fossil fuel free and self-repairing bio inspired materials fitted with multiple functions and performances?
Houses, buildings, skyscrapers: through observation, poetry, robots and 3D printers, the innovators of tomorrow try to mimic those super abilities of the living to build tomorrow's world.
Bio inspiration: pine cone, bird of paradise, shells, forest, coral, jellyfish
Description: In this episode, we will discover how, by seeking to copy the super solutions imagined by these organisms to move as efficiently as possible on land, in the water or in the air, the creators of the future, whether they are engineers, entrepreneurs or scientists, invent the world of tomorrow.
Description: In this episode, Kalina Raskin will meet researchers who get their inspiration from nature's extraordinary capacities of resistance, to make us stronger, more resilient, sturdier, and to design a more desirable, bio-inspired future!
Description: In this episode, Kalina Raskin will meet researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators who are inspired by nature's super sensitivity to provide us with the resources needed to improve our life conditions, everywhere on the planet.
